ProHigh spec dispite beng entry level

Consisn't as sma; as a 'compact' but is a lot better!

The Nikon D3200 is marketed as an ‘entry level’ Digital SLR body, although in my estimation, this sells the unit considerably short. I won’t try to regurgitate the system specifications, that’s a largely pointless exercise, and besides, any fool can cut and paste without any real understanding of...

ProGood starting point, basic

Consif you want to go further, you have to upgrade

Nikon D3200 I started out with this camera about 2-3 years ago, and at the time it was perfect. Did exactly what I needed it to until I got my first photo pass. Halestorm, Birmingham O2 academy. Granted, I got some great pictures but I never was able to be fully satisfied with them. I continued...

Product Information : Nikon D3200

Manufacturer's product description

Featuring 24.2 effective megapixels, the D3200 employs a Nikon-developed DX-format CMOS image sensor. It achieves high-resolution rendering and rich tonal gradation that smoothly reproduces human skin texture and gradation of sky. Also, utilizing the large sensor of a D-SLR, high-quality still images and movies can be taken with beautiful background blur. The high pixel count of the D3200 is also effective when images are printed. Even when taken still images are trimmed and enlarged, high-resolution image quality is realized with the least degradation. To process 24.2-megapixel data at high speed, an image-processing engine EXPEED 3, the same as that used by the Nikon D4, that is optimized for D-SLRs is incorporated. EXPEED 3 realizes faithful reproduction of human skin, expanded dynamic range and improved color rendering in Active D-Lighting. With its high-performance noise-reduction function, rich gradation with less noise is achieved even at a high sensitivity range, for both still images and movies. The D3200 analyzes color and brightness information of the scene utilizing the light source identification function of Scene Recognition System and detects the light source precisely by referencing the in-camera database for auto white balance. In this way, it can determine the ideal white balance even with difficult light sources. It is difficult to reproduce the brightness of subjects as it appears in such scenes as a dark room including outside scenery seen through a window, high-contrast scenes such as at the seaside under strong sunlight, and backlit situations. The D3200 employs active D-lighting that preserves details in both highlights and shadowy areas in such situations, maintaining moderate contrast. You can reproduce brightness as you see it in both bright and dark situations. With D-SLRs, it sometimes occurs that dust becomes attached to the OLPF (optical low-pass filter) located in front of the image sensor when exchanging lenses, and is photographed in taken images. To prevent dust from degrading images, the D3200 employs the Image Sensor Cleaning function and Airflow Control System. These double measures effectively reduce the possibility of dust being photographed in the frame, ensuring beautiful images. The D3200 employs guide mode that enables you to take pictures and movies the way you want, even if you are a first-time user of a D-SLR. By just following the guides displayed in the monitor, a variety of image expression is realized easily, such as "soften background" to emphasize the subject, "capture reds in sunsets", or "take bright/dark photos".
